A Note about Sugarbush Draft Horses
I see it over and over again, and no matter how many times it's said, it's still wrong. "Sugarbush Drafts are just an Appaloosa Draft Cross". Uh.... no. The Sugarbush Draft Horse was a breed created many years ago in Ohio. While the initial cross was made using Percherons to Appaloosas, in the many generations following, the breed has been solidified into a consistent type. Saying these horses are "just" a draft cross makes as much sense as saying that AQHA horses are "just" a Thoroughbred cross, American Cream Drafts are "just" a dilute Belgian, or that Morgans are "just" a grade.

I dropped the price on my Appaloosa and Appaloosa Sport Horses, and am offering free board through the end of December for all horses purchased.
On the downside, I have raised the price of training slightly. The new price of $390 per month will go into effect on January 1, for all new clients. All past clients in good standing will remain at the 2010 price. This is our way of saying thank you for choosing us.
Also, I have wonderful news! Heather Crispin of Livin Large Farms and Stephanie Adame have recently aquired a new Stonewall SportHorse mare. She is a lovely Appaloosa/Percheron cross mare, and arrived on Wednesday, November 24th here at Iron Ridge.
Cali is their new broodmare, and also is supposed to be a lovely riding horse as well. I plan to test her out just as soon as I am able to! She is a very sweet girl, and a pleasure to have at our farm.
